Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine 7 (11) : 806-811. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||OBJECTIVE: In the thrombolytic era, it was reported that in the presence of significant coronary stenosis, lowering diastolic blood pressure (DBP) below a critical threshold would result in a paradoxical increase in the occurrence of myocardial infarction (MI). We sought to re-evaluate this J-shaped relation in the era of pharmacoinvasive therapy. METHODS: A total of 182 patients who underwent early (||Source Title:||Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/131521||ISSN:||15582027|
